Welcome to my shiny new blog!! What do ya think so far?? Feel free to click around, check things out…kick the ole tires. Here’s some things you will notice: 1. Our very own URL! We’ve dropped Little Miss Rylee and now we’re “Somewhere in the Middle”. Things have changed since that very first blog post […]


Oregon Girls Rock. {period} Because who doesn’t love not one, but THREE{!} giant, swollen mosquito bites on their face!? I can make a fire with twigs and moss. Can you? Up with the sun…and my ass hole dog. Nothing beats a quiet morning, the crackling of a campfire, the rush of a stream and a […]


Wordless{ish} Wednesday: Excited about Camping

by katherine on August 17, 2011

In just a couple of days we will be headed out into the Oregon Wilderness to do some camping. Thinking about how excited I am, I got all nostalgic and started looking at our photos from Ry’s first camping trip last Summer. {Linking Up With: The Paper Mama, BabyBabyLemon, Parenting By Dummies} I am SO […]


Wordless{ish} Wednesday: Summer Bliss

by katherine on August 10, 2011

Linking Up With: The Paper Mama, Baby Baby Lemon, Live and Love Out Loud, Parenting By Dummies This was our first family activity of the Summer. Pathetic but true. {The rental project is done. CAN I GET AN AMEN!?} We started out the day sleeping until almost 8:30…almost unheard of in our house! We hit the […]


Fashion Police Friday – Country Girl Edition

by katherine on August 5, 2011

You guys…I have 3 {yes THREE!} weeks worth of FPF to choose from today! You’re all in for a treat for the rest of this month! First of all, I apologize because these photos are actually horrible but someone was not being very helpful in the stand-still-so-I-can-get-a-decent-photo-of-you department. Gotta love three year olds! This outfit […]


Wow…it’s come a LONG way!

by katherine on July 31, 2011

Dare I say it? Do I see a light at the end of the never-ending rental renovation tunnel? I don’t want to jinx it or anything, but today after spending over an HOUR in our local home improvement store I think we made our last purchase on crap supplies for said rental renovation. I hope. […]


On Guilty Pleasures and Just Plain Guilt

by katherine on July 29, 2011

Gone are the days of getting a pedicure every 3 weeks because…you know honey, our pregnant sister in law can’t go by herself! True story…when our sister in law was pregnant I went with her every three weeks throughout nearly her entire pregnancy to get a pedicure. That was also the time we were renting […]

Rylee’s Recap: Her 3-year Well Check

by katherine on July 19, 2011

Yesterday morning Rylee had her 3-year well check…two months late, I know. Whatevs. Since it’s Summer break Andy took her. That meant I got the “Rylee recap” when I got home. It went a little something like this… {Me} Ry, tell me about your visit with Dr. Barstow today. How did it go? {Rylee} Pretty […]


Recipe: Slow-Cooker Lasagna

by katherine on July 19, 2011

Since Andy has been working NONSTOP down at the rental to get it ready for our new tenants (T-minus 5 days, folks) I knew I needed to have really fast, really easy dinners this week. But I also didn’t want them to all be hotdogs. My slow-cooker and I kind of have a hate-hate relationship. […]
